Dear Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency,

I would like a list of products (food supplements/herbs) from non-EU sources that had been given approval for sale as food supplements prior to 1997 by the Medical Control Agency (MCA). I would like the list to include the following where possible:

Brand Name
Common Name
Botanical Name
Country of Origin
Date of Approval
Applicant (Company or Individual)
For those of African Origin, any documentation showing the proof of Approval given.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Tania Cocking
